Smooth Moves by Yellow Blackbirds

  • Reading this matchup recap is indicative of potential Toyota Hall of Famers. You're making Yellow Blackbirds look really good right now.
  • Special teams just got a bit more special this week, thanks to Justin Tucker. His 19.00 points was the highest total among kickers for the week and the second-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Lean, mean, and haunting your dreams. The New York Giants Defense was a terror this week, accounting for 23.00 points. It was the highest DEF score of the week and the third-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
  • We won't judge you if you want to bow to Antonio Brown. He ranked fourth in the league in scoring with 32.10 points.
  • With 30.40 points, Mike Evans had the seventh-highest score in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Sometimes 130.38 is enough. Unfortunately, the Toyota Hall of Fame has confirmed this time it's a smaller number than 174.14.
  • Jarvis Landry has now failed to reach his projection for five straight games. This week he scored 8.98 points versus a projected 14.08.
  • Brian's Boss Team was not able to win even though only 4 of their 10 starters fell short of their projected point total.
  • The Philadephia Eagles Defense failed to score this week with 0 points against a projected 8.19.
  • Doug Martin fell short of his scoring projection with 9.00 points, just 70.4% of his projected 12.79.

  • If they played the same schedule as Brian's Boss Team, Yellow Blackbirds would be 5-5.
  • If Yellow Blackbirds had played every team in the league each week, they would be 58-50.
  • Besides Yellow Blackbirds, Brian's Boss Team would have been defeated by four other teams this week.

  • Abe Lincoln once said, "You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." Somebody tell Drew Brees that. His 40.50 points led the league and was the 12th-most points scored this season, but Brian's Boss Team could not get the win.
  • Yellow Blackbirds got a combined 99.70 points from their WRs, the highest combined scoring output from the WR position for any team this season.

  • With a margin of victory of 43.76 points, Yellow Blackbirds had the second-highest margin in the league this week.
